hey - Thanks for the mention!
Just wanted to clarify this point:
"Mocha is one of those alternatives ...The benefit of Mocha is that
you can mock and stub methods on real classes and instances (not just
your mock models). So, if you’re specing class Foo, and you want to
assume that the method bar is working, you can just stub that out,
and focus on the part of the class that you’re creating at the moment."
Just to let you know, there is nothing stopping you from doing this
with rspec's mock/stub framework.
